Black History Month
African Americans have influenced and continue to influence Texas economically, politically, culturally, and socially, and TSHA is excited to take this month to highlight these stories from our programs and publications to spread an inclusive and comprehensive view of Texas history across the globe.
African Americans influenced Texas economically, politically, culturally, and socially. Living and working with other ethnic groups, they helped create the unique culture of Texas. Historians have not always acknowledged the role that African Americans played in the Lone Star State. This is no longer the case. TSHA is excited to participate in the celebration of Black History Month while offering Texans the opportunity to join the effort in preserving Texas History and especially African American Texas History!
That is why today, the TSHA is offering this new eBook, Struggle and Success: African Americans in Texas, for free.
In this exclusive eBook, you will discover:
- 174 pages of stories featuring significant African American figures in the realm of politics, civil rights, business, journalism, music and more
- Rarely seen historical pictures of people, places, and events from Texas history
- Bonus articles from Southwestern Historical Quarterly highlighting the desegregation of North Texas State College and other civil rights struggles
- Plus so much more!
